    Today I will build a trans crossmember, drive shaft then stick the body back on, dial it in, and be ready for Friday. I restored the frame over the last 10 days. ImageUploadedByTJJ1368707116.235791.jpg ImageUploadedByTJJ1368707131.505116.jpg

    Well hell, one of our crew couldn't get his car put togather so he bailed. And since he isn't coming, (with the camper) the buddy that was coming to sell in the swap meet bailed.

    The one that was still coming wife was in an auto wreck night before last and is in bed so he can't come.

    But if the creek don't rise and the tires hold up I'll be there this agternoon!

    So if anyone sees me parked on the side of the road please stop! :D
     
  16. Got the bikes loaded last night! Pullin' out with ssrs71 (Russell) around noon!

    Provided the traffic isn't "DC", we should see y'all round 6! Have the steaks ready....medium rare! :D

    The cheetah didn't make it!! U joint failed and sudden violent vibration caused some damage. Fan holed the radiator, starter shed the band and Bendix cover, shifter tossed a rod pin. With those 5.57's, drive shaft thought it was going 90. ImageUploadedByTJJ1368910802.076054.jpg ImageUploadedByTJJ1368910821.400602.jpg ImageUploadedByTJJ1368910840.004202.jpg
